  2. On the screen that appears fill out your name, your email, and your password for your email account
  3. Click “Continue”

If the above simple steps do not work then proceed to the POP or IMAP mail setup instructions below.

 

Instructions for POP or IMAP mail setup (the SMTP setup Outgoing Server will only work while on our network, you will need to use the Exchange email option if you're off campus)

  1. With the Mail App running click on “File” in the menu bar and click “Add Account”
  2. On the screen that appears fill out your name, your email, and your password for your email account
  3. Click “Continue”
  4. On the next screen use the account information outlined below:
    1. Account Type: “POP” or IMAP
    2. Description: This can be any description you prefer
    3. Incoming Server: “webmail.indwes.edu”
    4. Username: The first part of your email address (ie: firstname.lastname)
    5. Password: Your password
  5. On the next screen use the account information outlined below:
    1. Description: This can be any description you prefer
    2. Outgoing Server: webmail.indwes.edu
    3. Check “Use Authentication”
    4. Username: The first part of your student email address (ie: firstname.lastname)
    5. Password: Your password
  6. Click “Continue” then immediately click “Cancel” and then “Continue” again
  7. Un-check “Take account online”
  8. Click “Create”
  9. Click “Get mail” in the upper left of the Mail window

You are now completely setup to use your Mail application to send and receive email to and from your IWU email account.

As a side note, for POP mail by default, Mail will keep your emails stored on the email server for 7 days. This means that after a message is received 7 days later the message would no longer be available on http://webmail.indwes.edu. However, you can change this behavior by:

  1. Click on “Mail” in the menu bar and selecting “Preferences”
  2. Click on “Accounts” at the top of the new window
  3. Click on your IWU email account
  4. Select the “Advanced” button on the right hand side of the window
  5. Uncheck the third checkbox that says “Remove copy from server after retrieving a message:”

With mail set like this your emails will remain on the server until you log into http://webmail.indwes.edu and delete them.
